Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-3, younger for reading aloud. These simple titles, part of the Pull Ahead Books series, do a good job of explaining how popular conveyances perform their jobs. Earthmovers shows how the machines dig, push, scoop the earth, and push it down. Sullivan introduces the parts of the truck and the person who drives it. He also introduces other machines that help the digger do its job. Trains examines both freight and passenger trains and looks at the train's parts and the role of the various cars. Both of these small, square volumes feature lots of nice, bright pictures, many taken from unusual angles. A fact page and a glossary round out each book. Other volumes in this series are listed in the Series Roundup in this issue. --Ilene Cooper


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Many children with an interest in these topics are likely to know more about these pieces of machinery than the authors offer. The vocabulary is extremely simple and may be appropriate for beginning readers but statements such as "Earthmovers are made to move earth" and the blade "-makes the earth smooth, like frosting on a cake" add little to the text. Tractors makes no mention of the source of the tractor's power. Implements are referred to as machines. The color photography is of acceptable quality, but is not always congruent with the text.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS (c) Copyright 2010.
